A 26-year old Brazilian has confessed to police how he killed over 40 people is a killing spree, Mirror UK.
Sailson Jose das Gracas gave details of how he killed 38 women, 3 men and a 2-year old child over a period of 9 years after he was apprehended while stabbing a woman to death.
He told police: “I would watch the victim, study her. I would wait a month, sometimes a week, depending on the place. I would get to know where she lived, how her family were, if she passed by on the street, I would watch, have a look at her house, studying her. In the early hours of the morning, I’d get through a gap in her house, really easily, and take advantage.”
Police chief Pedro Henrique Medina said Gracas curiously killed only white women.
He said: “His desire to kill was for women, and he didn’t kill black women, just white. He followed the victim, studied her step by step until he managed to commit the crime.”
Gracas said taking the lives of people usually helped him “calm down.”
He said: “When I didn’t do it, I’d become nervous, I’d pace up and down inside the house. And when I’d done it I’d become calmer. I’d do a victim, and I could stay two months without doing it, or three. I’d stay fine, I’d just be thinking of that one that I’d killed. Then I’d go out on the hunt.
“I didn’t kill worrying about going to jail. I did everything well, it’s because I really like it doing it. I was most concerned with fingerprints, or if the place had a camera. I wouldn’t take any documents with me so I wouldn’t leave any clues for the police.”
The serial killer also confessed to killing a 2-year old girl after he felt her screams will attract attention after he had killed her mother.
He also availed that his hunger for killing began when he was a teenager.
In his words: “I started to steal small things, do small robberies. And as I grew up I started having other thoughts. My thinking started to change, understand? From robbing, I started to think about killing. Aged 15, I stole handbags. After that, aged 17, I killed the first person.
“It gave me that adreneline rush, the first woman. And I thought about jail. Will I get caught? The things flowed well. So I started thinking about doing it more and more. And I liked it and started to get used to it.
“I have no regrets, no. For me what I did is done. I wouldn’t change anything, I don’t regret anything. If I leave prison in 10, 15 or 20 years, I’ll start doing the same thing again. It’s my will, there’s no other way. I leave, choose my ‘women’, the women I like to choose, and if I think that it has to be, it will.”
